VINEYARD

The Vigna Vecchia, planted by Orazio, was the starting point for creating our vineyard ecosystem, thanks also to biodynamics and the meticulous attention of the winemaker, Marco. Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Ciliegiolo and a few rows of Trebbiano and Malvasia were our first experiences and teachings.

ECOSYSTEM OF ORNINA

Our studies then focused on the selection of the vines that would best characterize the ecosystem of Ornina: not only Tuscan vines, but also vines with a more Nordic tradition, enhanced by our cool climate and calcareous clay soil In 2019, with the planting of the last vineyard, we temporarily completed the definition phase of our vineyard park, which currently covers an area of about 6 hectares all surrounding the estate.

VIGNA VECCHIA

2hectares of Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Ciliegiolo, Trebbiano and Malvasia. Pain and delight! Yes, because with its grapes we produce 4 of our most important wines, each of which has different maturation periods and zonings. The soil varies from calcareous clay in the upper part to a medium texture in the lower part. “Vigna Vecchia” is usually where each grape harvest begins and ends.

VIGNA DEL LAGO

Just below the old vineyard, this is the 1hectare white grape vineyard, mainly Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon Blanc. Loamy clay soil. The vineyard includes about 2000 plants of mostly aromatic varieties from which we are starting a new late harvest project.

CAMPONE

At the foot of one of the most emblematic places for our family, there is a hectare planted with Sangiovese and Malvasia Nera. It is the driest and steepest field, rich in limestone, clay and stones, lots of stones.

VIGNA COLLEZIONE

surrounded by woods and pastures, its soil is medium-textured clay, with a lot of marl near the woods. This is the home of ancient native vines that we will perhaps tell you about in secret while drinking a glass of wine.

CANEPAIO

This is our youngest vineyard, where hemp was grown in the past. A little less than one hectare is used to grow selections of Pinot Noir from Burgundy, with very deep calcareous clay soil.

VIGNA MAHSARÀ

Cultivated with Pinot Noir, our small vineyard is located just above the winery. It faces east and its soil is very calcareous, but also tends towards sandy. This vineyard has given us excellent results in sparkling wine making, which is why it is currently the base of our classic ancestral method... Mahsarà.

NON ONLY VINEYARD

Our latest adventure was the planting of a hectare of olive grove, and then who knows... there is still plenty of white space on the canvas.
That's why we never get bored at Ornina!
